The U.S. Senate approves America's participation in the United Nations, the "Million Dollar Quartet" jams at Sun Studios, Led Zeppelin disbands, and Pan Am collapses, all on this day.
1909: The first Grey Cup game, which decides the national championship of Canadian football, is played, with the University of Toronto Varsity Blues defeating the Toronto Parkdale Canoe Club 26–6. The actual trophy was not ready for presentation following the game, and the Varsity Blues did not receive it until March 1910. They would retain the trophy in the following two years, defeating the Hamilton Tigers in 1910 and the Toronto Argonauts in 1911. Since 1958, the Grey Cup has been given to the winner of the Canadian Football League, Canada's professional football league.
